Hello All,

With just 4 days to go to SAFNOG-5 in Johannesburg, South Africa, we are
excited to have you join us for what is going to be a very informative,
educational and fun agenda.

Highlights from the program include:

* 3 keynotes:
o Sunil Tagare (OpenCables), talking about the impact of the
submarine cables - on Africa - that Facebook and Google have
announced, and what it could mean for the continent.
o Byron Clatterbuck (SEACOM), also speaking about submarine cable
realities in Africa, how to make them sustainable and help
effect change in the region.
o Jerome Fleury (Cloudflare), who will be going into detail about
the outage his organization faced on June 24th of this year, due
to a massive BGP leak.

* The first carrier-neutral data centre that will go live in Kampala,
Uganda, at the end of 2019.

* A panel on the relevance (or lack of thereof) of generalized speed
tests in 2019 as minimum bandwidth increases for consumers,
enterprises and service providers.

* South Africa's first FTTH service provider that is delivering native
IPv6 to home users.

* Numerous tutorials/workshops that will provide training on:
o IPv6 deployment.
o IRR, RPKI and ROV for a secure, global BGP.
o Critical infrastructure vis a vis what the Internet should be,
and what it actually is.

There will also be a number of social events taking place, which will
connect all participants to further network with one another and create
opportunities on helping further grow the Internet within the region,
and the rest of the world.

To register for the event, and for more details on the agenda, please

We look forward to seeing you in Johannesburg.​
